2010 Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet - 98 pts
Dana Estates is the third winery to occupy this piece of vineyard land in the heart of the famed Rutherford Bench. First farmed and developed by German viticulturalist H. W. Helms in 1883, it was purchased in 1976 by John and Diane Livingston and served as the home for Livingston Moffett winery until proprietor Hi Sang Lee bought the property in 2005. The winery was re-designed by renowned architect Howard Backen, keeping the original stone walls as its centerpiece.  Hi Sang and Howard worked carefully with winemakers Philippe Melka and Cameron Vawter to insure that the space and facilities would enable the production of consistently world class wines.

Robert Parker 98 RP - 2010 Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet - 98 pts Dana’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard opens with a burst of super-ripe sweet red, mocha, berries, flowers and sweet spices. The Helms boasts stunning textural depth and richness. In a vintage in which so many wines are big and structured, the Helms stands out for its seamless fruit, silky tannins and superb purity. While the wine clearly has the power of the vintage, there is virtually no sensation of tannin. There is absolutely nothing out of balance in this stunning, virtuosic wine. Sweet floral and spice notes add gorgeous lift on the beautifully delineated finish. In a word: dazzling. The 2010 was fermented in barrel and spent 18 months in French oak,
